Members, family and friends were treated for a nominal cost by funds from the VW Association of Tasmania. A particular highlight of the evening was an award presentation to Patricia and Peter Curren who both received Life Time membership to the VW Association of Tasmania. This award was presented in recognition of their significant and ongoing contributions to the Association over many years. Also recognition was provided on the evening to Otto who has been supporting the VW Association of Tasmania group with his expertise of VW for many, many years.

A thank you also to the staff at Sublime for their service and accommodation of our group during the busy Christmas period.
